Stretching from Balbriggan in the north of the capital to Dún Laoghaire in the south, Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB) offers a comprehensive range of courses for all ages.
DDLETB was established in July 2013, amalgamating the former Vocational Education Committees (VECs) for Dublin and Dún Laoghaire. The ETB prides itself on its ethos of inclusivity.
In relation to Further Education and Training, DDLETB caters to a wide range of interests, with courses in everything from Business to Information Technology to Humanities and the Arts and Radio Production. You can read about their recent graduate Jules Coll, podcast extraordinaire and Today FM cover producer who upskilled in Radio Production at Dun Laoghaire Further Education Institute here.
Students from DDLETB provision centres have also made waves winning a spate of awards and accolades. In March 2019, Kelsey Doyle, a Blanchardstown Youthreach participant, was shortlisted as a finalist in Mental Health Ireland’s Art and Photography Awards and had her work displayed in Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Meanwhile, QQI awards were presented to Ireland’s Air Corps staff on 17th January 2019 in Lucan Education Centre, as part of DDLETB’s ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’ initiative.
